A JOFY tag by Chris W

How beautiful the JOFY stamps are! (If you've heard JOFY but don't know what it is, it's actually the acronym for Jo Firth-Young, one of the very talented PaperArtsy designers.) This lady has created a fab' range of stamps in both small, one-off, collage designs and full, stand-alone stamp collections. Better still, you can mix and match the whole range!

This tag is simply made using the JOFY 10 Collection of stamps, a tag, a little ribbon, some thread and beads.

You will see that I added cut a mountbord base for this tag but you don't have to. Simply sew around the edge of the tag in pink silk thread.

Stamp and colour a rectangular piece of white card and ink around the edges before tying ribbon around it and sticking it down on the tag.

Finish the tag with glass beads and fine bead wire.

You can create your own version if this tag very easily. Whatever you create, you'll find these stamps a great addition to your tool kit as they mix and match with so many images.

Have fun,



  1. just stunning - so pretty xx

  2. Fabulous, Chris! The vibrant pink with the earthy kraft looks amazing... though I have to take issue with any statement that begins "Simply sew", I'm afraid - no such thing as simple sewing for some of us!
